Ron Luxton Trophy (Last Updated 28/02/2010)
The 2009 drawn doubles event took place at Lord's Hill Outdoor Recreation Centre on Sunday 17th May, starting at 10.30am. The weather behaved pretty much as forecast, with heavy rain stopping about an hour before play was due to start, and then allowing us to miss the worst of the downpours during the lunch break, leaving only one afternoon game where we all got a bit damp. With 15 players we managed to get three games in each round, and most of them were encouragingly competitive.
Click on the thumbnail above to get an enlarged picture of the worthy winners, Graham, Tim and Wayne, who won all 5 of their games. Peter, playing with David and Robin, was unable to sustain his bid to win all four club titles in one season, coming second with 3wins and a points difference of +19 (better than the winning team's!). Last year's winners, Kaylee and Bernie, were drawn together again, and started the defence of their title well, but slipped away a bit after lunch to finish third with 3 wins and a zero points difference.
The full results are as follows:
